Conor O'Shea's Harlequins Were The Victim Of A Majorly Suspicious Brainfart In The Challenge Cup Final

Conor O'Shea's Harlequins Were The Victim Of A Majorly Suspicious Brainfart In The Challenge Cup Final
By Conor O'Leary Updated

Conor O'Shea signed off as the Harlequins director of Rugby in one of the worst week's of the club's history. The club dropped out of the Champions Cup places following a 62-24 thrashing at the hands of the Exeter Chiefs, before the tragic news of 20-year-old prop Seb Adeniran-Olule's death.

O'Shea's last game in charge was the Challenge Cup final against Montpeiller on Friday. With the last play of the game, Harlequins had the ball and needed a score to draw the game.

Even people with the most basic knowledge of rugby would know that when it's the LAST PLAY OF THE GAME, and you need a score - you probably should keep hold of the ball instead of kicking it away to the opposition.

But clearly somewhere in Ben Botica's life - no coach or youth coach told him about this:

Ironically/suspiciously Botica has already signed a contract with Montpeiller to play for them from next season. Hmmm

The loss consigns Harlequins to a Challenge Cup spot for next year.

Not how Conor O'Shea would have wanted to go out.
